Wow:

Wounded Warriors Foundation

He spot lighted Wilmington Ohio and the out pouring of support has been ridiculously good.

He give to others but as he's said he doesn't do it for the Look at me factor..

His money also creates jobs...No better charity if you ask me.

What a greedy greedy bastard.

The computer I'm using now was his donation to me. His charity.. Without it much of the work I do now would not be possible and I would be making nothing.

I give lots to charities already as I am, because I understand despite the troubles I'm having, there are people far worse off.

Glenn Beck doesn't seem to get that picture.

I guess the examples in my last post mean nothing then?

Giving to wounded troops isn't charity huh? Nope...

Sometimes you don't see the charity man. Do you tell everyone you know how great you are because you give to charity?

I give to charity too, I'm not exactly what I would call rich either. I don't talk about it much because it is my business what I choose to do with my money. Also, I don't like to brag about it. Charity isn't a source of pride for me, it is a reminder of the work we all have to do to make the world a little better.

My wife and I both give, but we don't make a deal about it because it stops becoming charity when you do it for any reason other than helping others. And that includes "crowing" about it.
Sorry for butting in, but I felt that point had to be made.


Not to say that Beck "crows" but I wanted to point out that those who give then make huge issues, aren't doing it for charity, but for personal gain.

No, no, no, you got it wrong, it's only charity if you're not on FOX news, conservative or libertarian...We're incapable of charity because all we ever think about is money...Money, money, money...If you're any of those things it's all just manipulation...


That's all that matters to you and I..Hoarding as much cash as we can so we can ensure that we screw others...



This is why i prefer policy rather than politics as far as topics of discussion..but I'm game.

No, I don't, but we're different. He has the status of a famous/rich person. He wanted that lifestyle, so he falls under some different rules. He should be giving more and telling more about who he donates to.

Why? He's a private citizen. He doesn't work for the government.

You and I are no different than he is. He has as much of a right to discretion and privacy as you and I do.

Who will write these rules then? Government I take it...More government control...

Gotta make sure you're not a greedy rich conservative right?

You do realize that violates the equal protection clause right? Or does that not matter either?

If Mr. Beck is genuinely concerned about America, why doesn't he just run for office? I'm thinking the pay cut wouldn't bode too well for him but he is already loaded. He sure talks the talk but personally I think he spent too much time staring into the sun.

I'm sure he could get elected and the mechanisms are already in place to effect the positive change he preaches.
It seems he'd just rather rile the

1) He is AGAINST net neutrality and pretends the government would take over the Internet if we'd get net neutrality. In reality, if we don't have net neutrality, corporations get 100% control of the internet and can bully anyone they don't like. Obviously beck likes that given that he's all about the money (gold scandal made it clear).

2) Goldline: I've worked in real estate investments for years, but never have I heard anyone trying to sell someone an investment that only breaks even if the price increases by 65% (!!!)...all the while stating that it's a great investment.

3) 10% of Muslims are terrorists: That would mean over 150mil people are Muslim terrorists...that's more than France and Germany combined and anyone who can count sees how ridiculous this figure is. Yet he continues to repeat it.

4) Sharia coming to the US: The mere thought is laughable as US laws prevent Sharia law from ever overruling US law. Saying Sharia's coming to the US is nothing but fear mongering and paranoia by delusional Beck.

5) "No president was ever sworn in without a bible": Blatant lie, Adams didn't use one, and neither did a few others...not that it matters, but it just shows how blatantly he's lying when trying to push his televangelist agenda.

6) Carbon dioxide isn't poisonous according to Beck and we shouldn't worry about it at all. I guess he never put a a plastic bag on his head...he should though.[/quote]



Climate change (again? ): I guess, After all: There is no longer[B] Any[/B] debate" ; is there?

7) Obama is a racist according to Beck...which is hilarious given that we don't have a single racist quote from Obama. But I guess it fits his agenda and must be true, right?
So much you can criticize Obama for, and he goes with this laughable attempt...

The ONLY thing Glenn Beck is remotely concerned about is making money for Premiere Radio Networks, Fox News Channel, and Glenn Beck, Inc.. Purely a modern day snake oil salesman for the weak-minded and lazy. It is pure folly to think cares about anything more than HIS bottom line. Follow him as a prophet at your own risk.

Wow - I thought this place was going to be a valuable resource to dig into some of these facinating theories, and to exchange colloquy in a civil manner regarding different perspectives. I'm almost afraid to express an opinion here because it's just a set up for hateful attack!

It's astonishing to me that anyone is still watching MSNBC or ANY of the major networks, other than FOX. Even Fox is too much (in the other direction) but at least we're getting what they're NOT showing on the other channels. Fox, Beck, Rush, Hannity - they are necessary. The antithesis of the Obamas, Pelosis, Weeeeners. It's the yin and yang, the balance. Perhaps finding a comfortable place in the middle is indicated.

Regardless of where anyone stands on the issues, you are of no use to anyone or yourself by bashing others who do not share your views. Rather, respect of the differences is in order. Anything else, especially spewing venom, is simply an illustration of ignorance, lack of tolerance, prejudicial and judgmental, and an insistance to intrude on others' realities.

OK - FIRE AWAY, LIBS!

Know what an "ad hominem" attack is?
At least the post above articulated his bullet points.

last night he( mr evil) said:
" Ishould expect more of myself by pursuing: "enlightenment, empowerment education and entrepreneurship."


I can see how independence scares the crap outof you libbys...

1) Goldline:

What does the rising gold price have to do with Beck's Goldline scam??

Either way, if you want to buy gold, you want it at the cheapest price possible. Goldline, endorsed by Beck, is selling gold at 65% ABOVE MARKET PRICE!!! That's a horrible investment and your comparison with real estate is completely irrelevant.

2) Net neutrality:

If you are against net neutrality, you are in favor of giving corporate America 100% control over the Internet. Look what happened last time we gave corporations free reign...yup, we got blessed with this awesome financial crisis!! It'll also allow them to silence any voice that goes against them...so you can kiss free speech goodbye.

As for ISPs being able to regulate bandwidth, right now they are only allowed to regulate MOBILE INTERNET traffic and aren't allowed to give one website more bandwidth than another. Once Beck's dream comes true, you can kiss that goodbye, and if your ISP doesn't like ATS for example, they can cap the bandwidth thanks to killing net neutrality.

3) 10% of Muslims are terrorists: If he had just said it once, I would have given him the benefit of doubt...but he repeated this ridiculous lie over and over again on his TV AND radio show!! Even a monkey on '___' can see that this figure is probably off by a factor greater than 10...but he didn't even bother correcting his mistake (lie). Why? Because it FITS HIS AGENDA!!!!

4) Obama's racism: Look, if you claim someone is racist, you need to show concrete actions and quotes that would be considered racist. Tell me, when did Obama act in a racist way or said something racist??

5) Wilmington: NO, it wasn't individuals taking unemployment benefits...it was the town accepting federal aid. Which is exactly the opposite of what Beck claimed. He could have told the truth, but he chose to lie in order to push his agenda.

6) Healthcare for dogs: I actually saw this clip, and he did NOT say it as a joke...at least he wasn't laughing. He tried to mislead his viewers on purpose and knew well that they'll spread this lie.

7) Mitt Romney's HC: LOL @ you judging my knowledge about economics. I got a bachelor in business, a masters in economics, and a masters in real estate. I've also worked in international real estate for years, and traded FOREX for over 15 years. So please, instead of trying to diss my econ knowledge, how about you start attacking the actual statement I made?


8) Soros: Is a hero tbh, donated billions to humanitarian causes, helped destroy COMMUNIST governments, and is a proponent for transparency and openness, something the US could use a healthy dose of. At least we have Wikileaks now, so that should improve.

Look, it's simply really, Beck is manipulating his viewers to push his agenda. He's misrepresenting facts on purpose (at best...I think he's lying) and never bothers to clear up mistakes he made. He's abusing the people's love for religion and patriotism to make sure they overlook his blatant mistakes.

"If you are against net neutrality, you are in favor of giving corporate America 100% control over the Internet."

I've heard this before...About ten years ago..I think it goes like this:

"If you're not with us you're against us".

The more things change the more they stay the same it seems.

Your quote has NOTHING to do with mine. It's really simple, if you want free speech and make sure corporations can't silence people they don't like, you are for net neutrality. If you don't care about free speech, and want to risk someone limiting ATS's bandwidth because corporations don't like the site, then you obviously don't care about net neutrality.

It's not always as black and white as you want it to be, sir.

I don't believe the policy, as it is written today, is a good one. I don't think it will help free speech, if anything it will render the internet nearly useless. You need to understand how vast networks and bandwidth works before you start calling people evil.

You and I can, right now, post nearly anything on the internet that we so wish. Even crap that is illegal in some instances. What is wrong with the internet today? It keeps growing, it's the last vestige of free market innovation left in America...Why the hell would we wanna slow it to a crawl and price poor people out of it through more bureaucratic crap?

Every time corporations have tried to pull crap on the net, the "netizens" as they call them have put so much pressure on the company that policies changed, or the company died. That's free market, and there's NOTHING wrong with it.


Can you point to a single company IN THE US that is doing this to anything other than known illegal material(Which they are required to block...Like kiddie porn)
